A royal expert said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became the outlets’ headlines due to their booming status.
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied knots, they made headlines every day due to the media scrutiny.
This time, a royal expert claimed that the Sussexes’ rock star status almost overshadowed Queen Elizabeth and the royal family.
In an interview with GMA, Robert Lacey revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex experienced cruelty. He reasoned out that Prince Harry, being a spare heir, worsened the royal rift between him and Prince William.
Because of this, Prince Harry developed a resentment toward the firm. This, allegedly, became more severe when the aides also said that they were attention seekers.
“The British royal system can be very cruel, and it’s particularly cruel to the spare,” he said. Harry came to realize in his teens that he was typecast as the court jester, the number two.”
Meghan changed everything
Meanwhile, Lacey went on to say that Meghan changed Prince Harry’s fate as an heir.
Per the royal author, she inspired Prince Harry and taught him to take control of his own life. That explains why he immediately agreed to leave their senior royal positions.
Since Meghan became their driving force, the two immediately became the rock stars of the family. They became more popular compared to the other members of the royal family — including the Queen.
The misunderstandings grew further when the Queen recorded a Christmas message in which she displayed several pictures on her table.
“I think the underlying message of that is, ‘Just remember your place, Harry and Meghan. These are the people that really matter in the royal family. And you are the backup. And you’re trying to play too prominent a role,'” he claimed.
Cause of Megxit?
Lacey also noted that Her Majesty’s action might have contributed to Prince Harry’s feelings of frustration.
When Prince Harry tried to discuss it with Prince Charles and Prince William, the two heirs reportedly did not take him seriously.
What’s worse is that they only ordered him to put what he wanted to say in writing instead of speaking with the prince.
Currently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex began their new lives in the U.S. They have also been tackling hot-button issues and even shared their sentiments about the U.S. presidential election.
